They requested that a question be added to Open Town Hall to gather public input. They will likely consider a vote on a potential change in rules of procedure on October 23.

The Davidson Board of Commissioners have listed public facilities as a priority in their 2018-2019 Strategic Plan. The provision of adequate space for employees to serve the citizens of Davidson into the future is a fundamental aspect of the services provided by the Town of Davidson. After several years of planning for improvements to our public facilities, including a space needs assessment, the town has been setting aside funds for the past three years to address our public facilities needs.
The Davidson Board of Commissioners would like to hear from more citizens on this topic. Could you please take our very short survey?

At the May 8 meeting, the Davidson Board of Commissioners approved a revised 2018 meeting schedule. This new schedule reflects the cancellation of the Davidson Coffee Chat on May 21 because we have outgrown the space at The Egg at Davidson. The Davidson Board of Commissioners values time with citizens to interact without an agenda.
The new meeting schedule reflects the following: The first Tuesday of the month will be a work session at 6:00 p.m. with an agenda, starting June 5. Starting in August, we will transition to the following schedule: Meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. for a work session with an agenda Meet on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. for a work session with an agenda Meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. for a regular meeting with an agenda (includes a public comment period) The mayor and commissioners are available for one-on-one meetings with citizens. Please arrange these meetings with them individually.
We'd like to get your input on coffee chats and the overall schedule. Could you please complete our survey?
